Chandigarh (I-Haryana News): The recent sharp rise in sexual crimes against women in Haryana has brought bad name for the state which boasts itself as number one state of India, now it has stepped further on Tuesday when a government official sexually harassed women police official posted in Panchkula.
As an English newspaper published from Chandigarh reported that a Government Employee of District Information and Public Relations Office posted in Panchkula telephoned woman Police Officer posted in Mansa Devi Complex Police Station and used obscene language and asked her the price to spend some good time with him and his friend in late night on Tuesday.
After this telephonic conversation police reached the place where this Public Relations department personnel was staying brought him in police station, who till then badly under the influence of liquor.
Initially, the Public Relations man resisted and tried to pressurized police, but when police forced him than he felt apology and police let him go free without registering FIR of incident.
The behavior of Public Relations man shows the mind setup of person whose office (department) is responsible to spread the policies and actions including special steps taken by Haryana Government after series of sexual crimes against women to ensure women is state about their safety but if a person posted in such a important government department which has direct day to day contact with Media and public does not have any element of fear of law and dared to sexually harass even woman in police uniform than what women could expect from criminals.
Further, the cowardice act by Panchkula police not registering FIR against Government Public Relations Man, and let him go free just after his mock apology shows the complete incompetency of Police even protect the esteem of its woman police official, than how a ordinary woman could trust on Haryana police to protect them.
When Intelligent Haryana News asked Haryana Director General of Police about the Panchkula police woman official sexually harassment Incidence, Mr. V N Vashist expressed shock over the reported incidence and told IHN that he has ordered, DCP Panchkula, Mrs. Parul Kush Jain to probe the incidence.
Also, when IHN tried to contact DCP, Mrs. Parul over his official Mobile, she did not pick up the calls.
Last not the least; if this case of sexual harassment by a Government Public Relations Man will be not dealt with iron hand than Haryana police women officials should have to take Indian Army protection from these types of womanizers in government services.
